Drowned in Sound

Whatever happens next, she can rest assured safe in the knowledge that together with her beau they've conjured up one of 2012's - or any other year in recent memory - finest debuts.

The 405

Whether it be a victory for production, a victory for collaboration or just a brilliantly bizarre fantasy, this chamber will be an alluring and magical sanctuary the next time it decides to fling open it's doors.

NME

Here are two people who already see the best in each other, and with ‘Melody’s Echo Chamber’ they’ve tried to make everyone else see it too. It shows.

Beats Per Minute

Delving slightly further into Prochet’s pop sensibilities, and treading the line between Keenan influenced and Keenan knockoff, this debut record sits comfortably in its sonic pocket content with the strides it’s already made rather than opting for any sort of notable diversity.

From the elusive, hyper-psychedelic textures and sound effects to the vintage (not to say nostalgic) quality of the songwriting, the duo brings in these endless layers of reverb and delay, crafting super colorful soundpaintings that do have some charm within, but rarely contain something worthwile underneath.

This is pretty much Tame Impala with a female, french vocalist. The problem is that this album lacks almost everything that made Tame Impala an interesting band to listen to. This is just another one of those psychedelic pop albums that mainly relies on trippy effects.
